Byron Bay is proof that the best things in life are often free. From pristine beaches and lush hinterland to its idyllic climate and youthful atmosphere, Byron Bay is full of priceless treasures.

If you’re heading to Byron Bay for some fuss-free rest and relaxation, these budget-friendly stays can be both kind to your wallet and good for your soul.

Byron Sunseeker Motel

Byron Sunseeker Motel is a quiet holiday park set on 1.5 acres of tropical gardens. Its air-conditioned cottages and apartments are all serviced daily and include kitchenettes, free internet and cable TV, plus private balconies or verandas and convenient parking spaces. Outside, you’ll find a spacious undercover barbecue area, a saltwater swimming pool, and a large manicured lawn which is the perfect location for sports, games, and other fun activities.

Backpackers Inn on the Beach

A fun-loving spirit is all you need to fit in at Backpackers Inn on the Beach, a relaxed hostel situated just steps from the sands of Belongil Beach. This super-affordable hostel features an outdoor pool and terrace, plus a range of activities including table tennis, snorkelling and beach volleyball. Bicycles are provided free of charge, and guests have access to shared kitchen and bathroom facilities as well as a common lounge area. The open-air cinema provides a chance to get cosy with your fellow backpackers as you combine big screen action with a soundtrack of crashing waves.

Glen Villa Resort

Just a five-minute walk from Byron’s lively town centre, Glen Villa Resort is a caravan park which caters to couples and mature groups. Glen Villa Resort offers a range of accommodation options which sprawl over 14 green acres. The deluxe and studio cabins all come equipped with TVs, air conditioning, ensuite bathrooms and kitchenettes. Those looking for a touch of luxury can opt for a spa cabin, while more adventurous travellers can choose from a number of holiday huts and camping and caravanning sites (both powered and unpowered). Glen Villa Resort’s saltwater pool is a popular spot for unwinding and mingling with other guests.

Ruskin House

This quiet bed and breakfast offers 4-star accommodation at a modest price. Ruskin House is just far enough from the town’s main strip to enjoy some peace and quiet, but it’s also close enough to take advantage of everything Byron Bay has to offer. All of the rooms at Ruskin House come with parking spaces, TVs, refrigerators, daily servicing, free WiFi and private ensuites, and are soundproofed to ensure a good night’s rest. Come breakfast time, sip a glass of juice and a freshly brewed tea or coffee, then choose either a classic continental breakfast or one of many delicious cooked options.

Bay Motel

Just 50 metres from the beach, directly opposite the surf club, Bay Motel is situated in the heart of Byron Bay. Shops, cafés and restaurants can all be found just a short stroll from the motel. As well as double and triple rooms, Bay Motel also offers suites which can accommodate up to five guests, making them an ideal option for families and groups.
